This cake with kefir tastes as good as it looks. The crust is made with dog biscuits. Your dog can use his favorite dog biscuits to make it a comforting and familiar treat. However, the crust is what sets the scene for the main event. The filling, which is a rich, creamy cheesecake-like mixture of gelatin, Kefir and fresh fruit, is what makes it unique.
The final touch is the bright garnish of fresh berries, encased with a honey-gelatin mix, which will make your dog’s eyes sparkle and their taste buds sing. It’s easy to make and looks great on your furry friends.
You can make 1 cup of crushed dog biscuits. Coconut oil (enough to bind the dog biscuits together)Coconut butter1 package of gelatin1/2 cup milk kefir1 Cup kefir cheese1 TBS honeyDog-friendly fruits of your choice (e.g. blueberries)
Use your hands to crush the dog biscuits. You can add more coconut oil if the mixture becomes too thick. Mix the coconut butter/oil mixture until it forms a crust. This crust should be packed into the bottom of a cheesecake mold. Place the cheesecake pan into the refrigerator and let it set. Then, begin to make the cheesecake layer. Mix the gelatin mixture with the milk kefir, kefir cheese and the milk kefir. Spread the mixture on the crust. Once it has set, place the fruit on top. Next, pour honey, water and gelatin on top of the fruit. Cover it once more and place it back in the refrigerator. Once it has set, take the cheesecake out of the pan and cut into slices.
